raising the rates
The Post Office has proposed a hefty rate increase, more than a 20% increase in media mail, as I understand it. That's the wrong move at the wrong time for those of us who send small parcels--books--at the standard rate. I buy plenty of books online, too, so I'll feel it on both ends. Looks like the cost of pursuing a well stocked home library may increase a few nickels. Oh well, it's back to basic cable... .
